Eagles sign Julian Okwara  

Roster Moves 1920

The Eagles have signed outside linebacker Julian Okwara.

Okwara spent the last four seasons with the Detroit Lions, playing in 38 games and making nine starts. The 26-year-old has recorded 54 tackles, 16 quarterback hits, nine sacks, and one interception.

This past season, the 26-year-old made seven tackles and two sacks in nine games. Okwara was waived before the Lions NFC Divisional Round game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, signing with the Lions' practice squad a day later. However, Okwara did not receive a Reserve/Future contract with the NFC North Division Champions following the 2023 season, allowing him to sign elsewhere.

Okwara attended Notre Dame and was a third-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. His older brother, Romeo, is a defensive end with the Lions.
